We tell you why this particular bag has bragging rights


Clean, structured and (very) roomy, the Ghost Bag – which debuted at Balenciaga’s SS ’20 – highlights Demna Gvasalia’s interpretation of power dressing for every career woman (shoulder-padded blazers optional).

The Ghost Bag is fashioned with a flap closure that’s secured with a hidden metal buckle engraved with the brand’s BB logo. Seen here in brown shiny calfskin. Silk satin dress, nappa leather boots, gold-plated Zamac, brass and steel bracelet, and gold-plated aluminium and brass earrings.

It comes in two sizes (M and L), with spacious double gusset compartments that can safely stow your 13-inch Macbook (for the L size only, pictured throughout). Seen here in dark grey shiny calfskin. Crepe blouse with matching skirt, nappa leather boots, gold-plated Zamac, brass and steel bracelet, and gold-plated brass earrings.

The adjustable strap means you can wear it as a top-handle or a shoulder bag. Seen here in red lizard-embossed calfskin. Silk jacquard dress, nappa leather boots, silver-plated Zamac, and brass and steel bracelet.

Choose from four materials (shiny or metallised croco-embossed calfskin, shiny calfskin, and lizard-embossed calfskin) and six colours (black, white, red, brown, dark grey and gold). Seen here in white lizard-embossed calfskin. Wool blazer dress, B gold-plated bronze ring, and resin and aluminium earrings.

The Balenciaga store is at #01-01 Paragon.
